TEHRAN (Iran News) – Yemen Needs Peace and Independence. Yemen is currently challenging with war and poverty which has been imposed by the foreign elements either inside or outside the countries and Yemenis despite economic hardship continue their resistance against the foreigners’ interference in their internal affairs.
For years Saudi Arabia-led coalition, backed by the U.S., has launched a war against Yemen to impose its own policy or placing its own elements in power in Yemen but Yemenis led by Houthi fighters have shown a great resistance against this vicious will of Saudis or their elements inside Yemen.
Now Yemenis’ resistance has paid and Saudis want talks and ceasefire and it shows how Houthis and brave Yemenis have been able to make the enemies retreat. Recent precise drone and missile attacks of Yemenis against Saudis have worsened the condition for the Riyadh-led forces and they seek an end to this condition.
This week Yemen’s air force carried out another precision retaliatory attack using a kamikaze drone, against the King Khaled Airbase in Saudi Arabia’s southwest.
Yemeni Armed Forces’ Spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Saree reported the operation against the airbase in the kingdom’s Asir region in early Sunday.
The operation, he said, used one of the air force’s Qasef-K2 UAVs.
Saree called the reprisal, Yemen’s legitimate response to a simultaneous war and siege by a Saudi-led military coalition.
The coalition has been trying unsuccessfully to restore power to Yemen’s former Saudi-allied officials.
Tens of thousands of Yemenis have died as a result of the warfare and the concomitant blockade.
The Yemeni forces that comprise the country’s army and Popular Committees have, however, never laid down their arms in their purpose to rid the country of the aggressors’ presence.
They have stepped up their counteroffensives against sensitive Saudi locations, including the airbase that they target almost every week.
The coalition, however, uses the attacks’ immediate aftermaths to allege that the kingdom has intercepted the incoming projectiles and UAVs.
It rehashed the denial in case of the Sunday attack, with coalition spokesman saying, “We take the necessary measures to protect ourselves in line with the international laws.”
The Yemeni forces have been mindful of the rules of engagement during their retaliatory strikes by refusing to take aim at civilian targets.
Yemenis are suffering the poverty and hunger but they are not ready to stop fighting against aggressors and ceasefire will have meaning when it is a real ceasefire and not a pretext for prolonging the talks and deteriorating the economic condition for Yemeni people.
Due to this resistance, it was reported that as many as 11 Yemeni prisoners belonging to the country’s army and Popular Committees had been released on Saturday during prisoner swap process.
Abdul Qader al Murtaza, chairman of the Yemeni National Salvation Government’s Committee for Prisoner Affairs, announced the development in a tweet.
The Yemenis were freed during two prisoner exchange procedures that went underway in the country’s western coast and the northwestern al-Jawf Province.
Such prisoner swap processes have been underway for some time between the Sana’a government and Yemen’s former Riyadh-friendly officials.
The war will have no positive achievement for Saudis, and, of course, for Yemeni people but ultimately, this is Yemenis who will be the winner of this uneven war because of their belief in independence and resistance against aggressions.
The drone and missile technology has given Yemenis an upper hand against Saudis’ atrocity and now everything is changing in favor of them and the Saudi-led coalition has to put their guns down against the Yemenis’ will of resistance and let Yemeni people decide their own fate without the interference of their so-called West-oriented friends.
Peace and independence are two important demands of Yemenis which should be respected by all parties which are involved in the war and imposition of economic hardship on Yemenis.
